Who is Nolan Arenado you ask? Well, Nolan Arenado plays third base for the Rockies and has a MLB leading 13 home runs (10 in April) . Arenado has been flying under the radar these last few seasons. I’ll bet you forgot (or never knew) that he hit 42 round trippers last season. tying Bryce Harper.
Here’s an interesting nugget… Arenado's ten home runs in April mark the third time in the last five baseball months (so only counting April through September) that Arenado has hit double digit long balls inside a designated 30-day window. (It's also worth noting that he did go through a power slump last summer in the middle of this, only hitting a combined six home runs in July and August.).
Arenado will face the Mets this weekend. First up will be Matt Harvey. Although Harvey pitched a great game his last start, It’s no secret that Harvey's pitch velocities are down across the board. It will be interesting to watch Arenado’s at bats against Harvey and the rest of the Mets staff. Harvey has dominated the Colorado Rockies in three career starts, but he's never faced them at Coors Field. This should be interesting.
